As close as I am ever likely to be with an osprey; this lovely girl was being treated for a fungal infection, and was out for a walk with her carer.

Strong closeup of osprey. The clarity of detailing, the contrast between the osprey and the muted nature of the background, and the color and the patterning of the osprey's plumage all work hand in hand to create a striking image of a truly beautiful bird.

Fungal infection on a bird - it must have been thrush.
A very sharp and clear image and I like the close crop too.

Perfect shot. She has a very intense look.
I noticed just two weeks ago the ospreys have returned to my area and enjoy watching them hover over water and catch their prey.

Beautiful bird, well captured. The BG makes her pop out of the frame. Love it.
